Yeyo! It’s fun to say. Pretty fun to drink. But more fun to say.
Yeyo is a new brand, a straight-up silver tequila. 100% agave. 80 proof. No aged versions. Hailing from Beaverton, Oregon (by way of the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, of course), it’s only now arriving in small pockets of the Pacific Northwest.
Easygoing but good, Yeyo has a distinct citrus character that makes it good with margaritas (I know, I tried) but also fine on its own, if you’re a silver sipper type. It’s got good agave character in the body, with a kind of charcoal-tinged finish. Quite smooth, I have no complaints, really.
Or as I like to say: Yeyo!
